Espresso Brownies

August 16, 2018 in bars - 1 Comment

I don’t think I’ve met a chocolate dessert I haven’t liked.  Wait.  That isn’t true.  I don’t like chocolate ice cream and I don’t like chocolate cake.  Weird. I know.  Other than those two desserts, every chocolate dessert I have had, I have liked. Homemade brownies are one of my…

Energy Bites

July 23, 2018 in misc. - No Comments

I am always amazed at the amount of energy children have.  We went camping last week in 90+ degree weather and the kids were running around, riding their bikes, and playing frisbee–all in the ridiculous heat.  I sat in the shade and just watched.  (Just look at their hot, sweaty…

Neiman Marcus Cookies

October 8, 2017 in cookies - 3 Comments

There are very few cookies I have met and didn’t like.  Nuts, fruit, crunchy, chewy, I love them all.  Raisins?  Bleh.  I think this has to do with the fact that my mom always put raisins in my lunch and I never liked eating them, but if I wanted dessert…

Coffee Toffee Bars

October 2, 2016 in bars - No Comments

Well, it’s officially autumn.  The leaves are falling in droves, the air is crisp and cool, and the gourds are out in full swing.  The weather today has been cool and cloudy, and all I want to do is curl up with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and a…

Blondies

May 16, 2016 in bars - No Comments

I have the lucky priviledge of having my parents and my husband’s parents living close by.  And I love it, because my kids get to spend time with both grandparents, something I wish I had growing up.  This Mother’s Day, I had the pleasure of having my in-laws over for…
